Easter and the Royal Wedding seem to have brought a rash of special offers from the genealogical world. First up, a big thank you to Lucy who has pointed out that searches, etc., on the Lost Cousins website are free until 2nd May. It is not immediately obvious from their site, but their latest newsletter (itself a very good read) will put you in the picture.
Ancestry are also offering free access to their England & Wales Marriage Indexes 1837-2005 during 21st-30th April. Incidentally, there's a little bit more info on those new Liverpool records I mentioned yesterday, here.
If you're a GOONS member, then you are in for yet more special offers from MyHeritage and TheGenealogist - see the latest newsletter, here.
Do you remember that specialist genealogical search engine, Mocavo, that I mentioned back on 22nd March? Well, it has made an important announcement, here, which I think you should all have a look at.
The Irish Genealogy News blog is carrying an interesting piece about the forthcoming Irish genealogy TV show, The Genealogy Roadshow, here.
MyHeritage have flagged a really interesting 20-minute lecture which has appeared online, here, about humanity's distant past, how we're all related and how diversified we all are. Some astounding facts are aired, especially about our common ancestors - but I'll not spoil it for you!
And if you want to examine the British Library's latest batch of Podcasts then take a look here.
ON THIS DAY
1964: After being postponed from the day before, BBC2 TV channel is launched. A power cut caused the delay - Play School being officially the first programme broadcast at 11am.
